Make and print a personalized word search using Puzzle Maker, circling the recipient’s name in lieu of using a gift tag.  This option is best for smaller gifts that can be wrapped in a standard (8×11) piece of paper.  For best results copy and paste the finished cross word into a word document, enlarge the font to as big as possible within the margins and print.

Give edible gifts in a package printed with the recipe. Print the recipe in a fun font on plain or colored paper, line the inside of the paper with waxed or parchment paper to protect the treats, roll and tie the ends with pretty ribbon.
